Maison MC Thiriet 'Aux Montagnes' Côte de Nuit-Villages, Burgundy, France 2020
Camille Thiriet and Matt Chittick founded Maison Thiriet in 2016, in the heart of the Côte-de Nuits. Their goal was to vinify the best grapes from less known areas around Burgundy who practice organic agriculture, and the result is beautiful. Camille Thiriet is a name to remember, we have been glad to watch her trajectory since the first vintage to hit NY, and year after year she impresses us more. For this cuvée, the vines are 50 years old from an organic vineyard located in Comblanchien, where the winery is located. 20% New oak from Rousseau.
Pairing: Smoked duck with cherries
Grape: Pinot Noir
